Deploys for the week of 2012-05-14

Recommended Posts

Because of the crashing issues with the Threaded Region Crossing code in RC last week we do not have a candidate for promotion to main channel. We will put a fixed version of the Threaded Region Crossing project onto two RC's this week. Wednesday morning we will be enabling the new Region Idling project on the BlueSteel RC. Details here:

Second Life Server (main channel)

No changes this week. No rolling restart.

Second Life RC BlueSteel

BlueSteel will enable the Region Idling feature. This is an exciting new option we have designed to help system performance and efficiency. Region idling allows Second Life regions to relinquish some of the script and CPU time when avatars are not present, which should improve performance for occupied areas sharing the same hardware. More details are here:

Second Life RC LeTigre

We have the Threaded Region Crossing project back on this channel! The crashing bug has been fixed.. This contains the prototype threaded region cross for agents and uses the new threaded RPC/thread state machine mechanism. Look for issues with region crossings.

Second Life RC Magnum

We will be monitoring this thread during the next week so please feel free to post issues that you feel have been introduced by the new code. Please file a JIRA for issues you find and post the JIRA link into this thread. It really helps us out. When determining if issues are relevant or not research is key. Tracking down exactly the right situation where an issue is occurring greatly speeds up the development process to get fixes in place.

I appreciate your help. Have a good week!




p.s. If you are interested in helping test SecondLife in beta please join the group "Second Life Beta" in-world. We also have an email list where we communicate upcoming projects and how you can help. (https://lists.secondlife.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/server-beta ) Once a week we meet on ADITI to discuss new features, new bugs, new fixes, and other fun stuff. You are more than welcome. Information is here:https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Server_Beta_User_Group

I know the GSP is not your province Oskar, but a little consistancy would go a long way towards re-assuring us that Linden Lab really is a single entity with one policy.  It is now over 20 hours after the rolls to the RCs finished (I assume), two other posts have appeared and yet the RC roll is apparently neither resolved or closed.

This sort of thing is just the sort of handle the naysayers and critics of Linden Lab latch onto to knock LL.

I gather that Rodvik would rather tweet than have posts appear here, but, dammit this is your own page!  We are online, so why oh why is the Grid Status Page such a laughing stock?
